Coldfusion - converting Excel files to PDF

Hello,

Does anyone know if it's possible to convert Excel files to PDF. I was looking into cfspearsheet but it seems like it's not what I'm looking for. I also looked into OpenOffice but it looks like it can only convert the files to CVS or HTML.

Thank you!

If you're using CF9+ with OpenOffice, try using <cfdocument>. Though the CF docs don't mention Excel => PDF specifically, the conversion is powered by OpenOffice. So whatever conversions OpenOffice supports, cfdocument should support too. Try something like this:

<cfdocument
    format="pdf"
    srcfile="C:\documents\MyDocument.xls"
    filename="C:\documents\MyDocument.pdf">
</cfdocument>
